of the united states is at 47%. now, sometimes folks simply don't vote. certainly number built into participating. but 47%, which the obama people thought was the magic number that would put mitt romney into water, this stage what you mentioned it. is not an entirely happy number for barack obama spent and i'm not saying that the election is over. this is in the zone of uncertainty, where lots of things can happen, 12 years ago when george bush was ahead three to six points, depending on the poll and news of his drunk driving arrest. and just stopped his progress but he didn't lose votes but he gained no votes. and al gore stormed and if i did kerry to win the popular vote. and who knows what the next 12 days are going to bring. but looking at the data carefully, i don't want to discount the possibility that michael is right at all. far from me to do that. i just think there's lots of reasons i think that in ohio, it's looking a little stronger for obama than it is for from the. and that the opportunities to win an electoral victory absence of late 1980 break against the presid
the united states. >> campbell is scheduled to meet with japanese officials to discuss bilateral cooperation on situations in east asia. >>> we interviewed a prominent british analyst on how he sees japan/china relations at the moment. professor michael clarke is director general at the royal united services institute for defense and security studies. >> for european, we understand the issue, i think, of the islands. we understand the delicacy of the issue. but it is a problem that can be similar disputes all around the world, and they will flare up from time to time. the most important thing from tokyo's point of view is not to allow too many precedents to be set on either side, which lock both powers, both beijing and tokyo, into positions from which they cannot retreat. we are modern powers in the world. there are many powers in the world which really are not modern. china is a great 20th century power. it's not really a 21st century power. and so those of us who are post-modern century societies, who live in very 21st century ways in the world, have got to share our ideas about the legit
at an advantage and disadvantage to those other countries including the united states, that it is taking advantage of and finding ways around some of the rules and procedures that exist under the world trade organization and we have to use that mechanism but it doesn't deal with all issues. it isn't clear whether it deals with the currency question. it may be difficult to use wto mechanisms to address some of the things the chinese government is doing through the so-called state owned enterprises to give them an advantage and make it more difficult for outsiders to compete for a share of the market. the point i would make overall is we have to find ways to exert leverage, and we have to pursue an integrated strategy that deals with this full range of issues. i guess since i am thinking of it i have a third point that agrees with jeff to the extent it can be a multilateral effort because i think we share important interests with other and dealing on these issues. >> the final and concluding question tonight will be from garrey wong left teach for china sent to us by e-mail and the question is addre
disappeared from the united states, and we conquered smallpox in the americas in 1971 and worldwide in 1977, sort of lent us confidence that really, there wasn't much that we couldn't do. as a result, the center began to diversify, to broaden its focus. and so we expanded into chronic disease areas. the national institute for occupational safety and health was incorporated into cdc in the early 1970s. much more recently, we've gotten into areas surrounding injury control and prevention. and of course we realized in the last few years that the infectious disease agenda is not over. certainly it's not in the developing world where it still causes a very heavy burden. apart from what aids is doing as probably the most egregious example that we've seen in our lifetimes, having surpassed malaria as the largest killer of people in africa, is tuberculosis, for which we've had good drugs, haven't used them wisely or enough in years past to reduce some of the problems that we're seeing today. and that's getting more and more serious now with multiply resistant strains of tuberculosis. tuberculosis i
of the united states. the combined population of this country is roughly 21% of the total population of the united states, but that conglomeration of states is who gets to pick our next president. which means the equivalent of a country the size of france is deciding who the president is of a country the size of us. that little france-sized country gets tons and tons of attention now, to the point where even smallish population centers within this tiny bollous of states get lavish attention from the candidates. they even end up being the subjects of the candidates' flattering word play. >> as i was coming in, i got to meet the principal and the superintendent and i was saying, i stopped on the way down at a diner, had some breakfast, and someone said to me, ohioan said, where you coming from? and i said, dayton. they said, where you going? i said, marion. he said, i read in the paper, you said you love ohio. and that must be true, you've gone from dayton, ohio, to marrying ohio. i said, i never thought of it that way, i didn't think i was marrying y'all, but it's great to be here. it
the united states government or any other organization i'm a part of, and therefore, now, i can be a troublemaker. i'm focusing on the countries of egypt, libya, and tunisia, and focus more on egypt because i spent 20 years on the country, lived there for six years, and there for six weeks during the summer time. algeria and morocco have been peaceful, but don't count on it. algeria and libya or net oil exporters to help them get on their feet if they do not focus too much on that. as the ambassador said, libya's back to 1.4 million barrels a day, almost miraculous given the countries that have gone through things like this. algeria produces about the same amount of oil as libya, but it has six times the people so there's a lot more people to spread that across. algeria produces 2.3 cubic feet of gas a year, and if you do the math, it's a billion cubic feet per person in both countries, and if distributed nicely, everyone would be well-off, but we all know that's not the way it is. egypt is a net oil importer. it is a gas exporter, but right now, mostly lng because the pipelines
mcveigh, you can find that in the unabomber's writing, this becomes the united states government. and i don't think anybody would have any fault with that one, would they now? no, we can actually see the seven-headed dragon: one head being the atf, the fbi, the justice department, you know, the irs. yeah, that's right up there; that's the antichrist. this is the way it's going- the government, it becomes the antichrist. armageddon, then, is not a plain in israel- you know, koresh literally took it to texas- but it's right here. the united states is armageddon; this is where the mother of all battles is going to take place. babylon, the whore, the harlot of babylon in revelation- if you haven't looked at the book, you kind of have to go back and look at some of these images- but that's corrupt, materialistic, secular humanism, multiculturalism, globalism, the whole mishmash that says everybody belongs. uh - uh. only good christians in that interpretation, but people who believe in the american way belong. you know, you get that feeling in militia groups. the messiah doesn't tend to be a
. this is in response, not to united states policy, not to, obviously, the administration, not to american people. it is in response to a video. a film... that... we have judged to be reprehensible and disgusting. that in no way justifies any violent reaction to it. but this is not a case of... protests directed at the united states, at large or at u.s. policy, this is in response to a video that is offensive and... to muslims. we have no information to suggest that it was a preplanned attack. >> sean: all right. so did you hear what he just said? he said the administration had no information -- none to suggest that was a pre-planned attack. and yet, two hours after it began, al qaeda claimed responsibility. so that was the big lie on september 14. now you fast forward a few days later. and here's what we were told, one week after the assault. >> our initial information -- and that includes all information -- we saw no evidence to back up claims by others that this was a pre-planned or premeditated attack, that we saw evidence that it was sparked by the reaction to this video. and that is what we
as well as globally related it to shale gas. although shale gas really made united states self-sufficient in term of gas supply, so we're not considering the united states as a destination for selling our lng to united states. but there is also the direction of flows from the united states to europe our main market and to asia, as well. but at the moment, what's happening, it looks like that shil gas boom will create a lot of problems for the domestic producers in the united states because prices in united states are not sustainable, are not able to support investment cycle in the . >> and just china, the plan is for china to be a long term partner for russian oil and gas production. much i guess will depend on on getting the pipeline built and developed. where are we in that process? >> it's not so much the problem of a pipeline. it's a problem that we still are not able to negotiate a price that meets our expectations. the problem comes from the fact that in china, prices for natural gas are regulated. the current price levels are well below our expectations. you mentioned sh

of the united states right now and still lose in the edirector recall college? >> they. there are they are spending all of their time in, quote, in play. if either one of the can indicates start going places that they have not gone before that will show definitely that president obama is in trouble. if some are some are starts hoeing up in michigan or tense. states that are considered a lock for the democrats, then he's in deep do do as george bush used to say. >> and former governor asked for more resources to pennsylvania. >> that may be. >> today president obama received the endorsement of colin powell and there was the endorsement of the washington president going to the president. in this day in age how much do the endorsements matter. >> the "washington post" does mean something in north virginia. they won by virtue of the fact that he was everyone dorsed by the "washington post." and he lives almost in the tennessee border. but that does make a difference in north virginia. colin powell endorsed president obama four years ago. if he didn't endorse him this time t
because the majority of people in the united states are white. this is what i want the white democrats to realize. if you do not support president obama, it is going to be hard for african americans to come out and support another white democrat. the white democrats are not supporting statewide black politicians. that is the reason why no black democrats can get elected in the senate. look at florida. you best come out and support president obama because it will be hard to get blakcs out of [indiscernible] host: a comment from joe on twitter -- a headline from "the washington post" today -- one other story, this from "usa today" this morning. we want to hear what is driving your votes with just 12 days to go before the election. charlie from virginia on the independence lin t line. caller: i will be supporting the libertarian candidate gary johnson. the only candidate who can turn this country around. he wants to stop intervening in all these wars and balance the budget now. our government is broke. yeah, everyone should check out gary johnson. he is a libertarian and running for presi
now and headed straight for the united states. it is really two storms that are about to come together as a super storm. this one is cat 2 hurricane about to merge with a winter storm one expected to blast the east coast with heavy rain, possibly snow under the worst possible time. full moon, high tides with 35-foot waves. right now hurricane sandy and so big, people will feel the impact from florida all the way to maine. here is a look at the storm from space. just along the coast more than 40 million people are in its path but meteorologists predict as far as inland ohio could feel it. they say it could cause a billion dollars in damage or more but nobody knows what to expect as one forecaster to expect, we don't have many modern precedence for what the models are suggesting. hurricane sandy has crashed into cuba and killed two people in the caribbean and now on track to hit the united states within days. folks in miami beach are already feeling the winds all over south florida. sandy peeled the roof off the apartment building. white house officials have briefed the president and eme
the united states and israel trying to show to iran and anybody else that the united states and israel have the ability to do military maneuvers together. the whole thing about this israel and iran are already at war. they have been in a covert war for years. attacks against iranian scientists, assassination attempts. the iranians sent in assassination squad to washington to try to kill the israeli ambassador in washington the israelis september assassination squads all over the world. we have the cyber war. iranians attacking u.s. banking system and israelis presumably attacked the nuclear weapons program. melissa: the reason they think it is a israel testing the distance to see if they can do that kind of strike on iran. what do you think about that? >> i think is really good -- israeli haves a couple big problems with any kind of attack against iran. first it is a long ways away. it is 1,000 miles away. israel doesn't have the ability to get there to drop bombs and come back. they have to have a aerial aerial refueling. it is new technology but they can't do a lot of it. second thing the
attack. i didn't need this. remember, the president of the united states also should have known that that consulate was attacked twice in the six months before, attacked in april, attacked in june of there was a whole drill through the consulate, big enough for a truck to go through. the president should have had all of that information. >> greta: he may have known that and been dismissive of it. >> then owing an explanation to the american people why he didn't protect the ambassador there. there was no reason for this man to die. >> greta: i guess the reasonna i mean, besides the new information and email, we talk about it again because it's a very important topic, four americans were killed. i don't understand, why did they come out with the videotaped story. if it's a lie, it's a stupid lie because there is -- you know you will be caught because there is nothing to support it in this written trail. >> every coverup is stupid, right. the coverup is always worse than the crime. although i am not sure that's correct here. competent procedures could have prevented this. if the pr
of the world. the ones like mexico and latin america are tied more directly to the united states. >> so you must believe that they're going to fix the fiscal cliff if you think things will be better next year. >> well, we think they'll muddle through eventually. our best guess is they'll kick the can down the road between now and the new congress and administration and the pressure will be on that at some point they'll work things out. hopefully in a fairly reasonable manner. i mean, it's another two years for the next election and four years until the next presidential election. so maybe they've got a little incentive to sit down and talk now. >> yeah, wouldn't that be nice? >> from your mouth to god's ears. >> jim bianco, what are you looking at right now ? what are you buying? >> i'm really looking at the election. i think this market has been all about monetary stimulus for the last two years. the rally we've had since june has been about qe-3. the concern we've had in the last few weeks other than earnings has been a romney presidency, means bernanke gets replaced. that's what's drivin
's statement. mourdock of course is the republican nominee in the state of indiana for the united states senate. let's take a look we've got a couple guests, u.s. congressman gwen moore from wisconsin, recounted her ideal in this horrible situation and we also have msnbc star, howard fineman. congressman moore, i want to talk to you about your own feelings, attitudes and experiences that might put a light on this thing. candidate for the united states senate in indiana saying if a woman is raped and has a pregnancy she should be forced by law to have that child. if you read the republican platform it basically says criminalizes abortion in any case. go ahead. your thoughts. >> well, i could tell you as a survivor of rape, legitimate rape, whatever kind of rape you want to call it, i caution the women of america to not allow mitt romney and these senators to take over our government. they will totally eviscerate the rights of women to control their own destiny. i could tell you, rape is not rare, and you know, i differ with michael steele and others who say that they have just been inarticulate.
of the united states? >> lfirst of all, the response has been unbelievable, beyond what anyone would have ever thought, as you probably know, and as you said. and it has been incredible, the president is probably the least transparent president in the history of the country. and i am hearing this, not as a negative thing, but i am viewing this as a positive, positive even for the president. people want to see what is going on with the president. and i offered $5 million, payable immediately to a charity of his choice -- now, that's his charity, if he releases his college records and applications. and passport records and applications. now, if you look into the past, greta, john mccain released the bushes released, clinton released... almost all that i know of, have released information and informs that i am talking -- informs that i am -- information that i am talking b. president obama hasn't released. i hope he takes me up on it. it would be a great thing for charity. truthfully, i think it would be a great thing for him and certainly for the country because there is so much anger about this
from the president of the united states. this isn't battleship president, governor romney, and oh, he is a "bs-er." he said that rolling stone magazine. is it appropriate, simon? >> i don't think it is any mystery that this is a brutal campaign, megyn. people are fighting hard for what they believe. i think this is normal and look at what barack obama has been called. he has been called a socialist, people have said he didn't have a birth certificate and wasn't born here, the attacks have been unprecedented in some ways. they have been said about him. this is a rough business these days, and i think that we are seeing it in the final days of the campaign. megyn: i think a lot of them will say bring it on. it's the presidency on the line. >> he has a lot of people he needs to win over. i find it humorous that barack obama is accusing romney of being a "bs-er." this is the guy who said that ronnie wanted to bankrupt the industry. this is the guy that said that individual mandate wasn't a tax, but then the supreme court said it was. this is the guy who blamed benghazi on the youtube vide

[laughter] yeah, oh, wait a second. you know what, i'm sorry. i'm sorry. that wasn't donald trump trying to publicly extort the president of the united states. that was a gorilla eating its own [bleeped]. my apologies. [cheering and applause] i don't know how that... that was weird. anyway, sarah palin chimed in, accused the president of "shucking and jiving." yeah, her words, "shucking and jiving" about libya. let's take a look at her statement. oh, wait. i'm sorry. i'm sorry. that's... huh. huh. i apologize. that was a hippo spraying its own [bleeped] through its tail. again, i... i don't know how i ended up confusing these images. look, let's face facts, we're tired as hell of covering all of these important electoral developments anyway. so tonight we thought we'd focus on a different, perhaps more interesting topic. to that end, we will have on as our gu

(laughter) as you know, the only president in united states history who ever had his wallet stolen by a baby. (laughter) you don't hear as much about old president craphispants. (laughter) but given obama's foreign policy record, this debate is going to be a bloodbath. >> i congratulate him on taking out osama bin laden. drones are being used in drone strikes and i support that entirely. and feel the president was right. i want to underscore the same point the president made. i felt the same as the president did. i supported his action there. absolutely the right thing to do to have crippling sanctions.
